About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

FairTax Christmas Wish

Below is a Christmas wish I received from Ken Hoagland, Chairman of the FairTax National Campaign. 
So many people have spontaneously said to me things like "why can't the FairTax be passed because it is so simple & makes so much sense for our country?"  Of course you know the answer to that & that is why we have to double our efforts in 2010 because the stakes have never been higher for America's existence as we have known it.  The FairTax would pass into law in five minutes if everyone would spread the word the best they can & let their elected reps know their feelings.

Dear Doug,

They came to Bethlehem for the census. They stayed in a manger because no rooms were left. That night changed the world.

These thousands of years later, I hope that this holiday season finds you with those you love and reflecting on friendship, grace and the spirit of the season--whatever your beliefs.

"With me in my stocking and Ma in her cap, we had just settled in for a long winter's nap...". From "The Night Before Christmas" this will be told again to the delight of millions of children. Honestly, for me that "long winter's nap" sounds just right--even if out of reach with two active boys in the house.

Today, we rest and reflect and celebrate. Many will pray. Tomorrow, we think and worry again, as always, about our families, our future and our nation. We are needed by each.

As hard as this year has been for our country, and perhaps for you, I sincerely hope that today you find a measure of peace and some rest from your labors.

Work on the second American tax revolt begins again soon, so rest well now. We are all needed in the coming year.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and the season's best wishes to you and yours.
